Hello donjuanzx9, welcome to the site. To have the back ground media show behind the keyed subject, place the media directly below the green screen layer on the timeline. This means your timeline should resemble as follows:

Layer 2: Green screen media.

Layer 1: Back ground plate.

Enjoy the program
Wizard.

This thread was incredibly helpful. The one missing part of the tutorial is that it doesn't explain what this thread does and I was seriously stuck until I read this.

Possibly worth adding to the tutorial?
